It is a crime in many states, including Ohio, for medical professionals such as physicians, therapists, nurses and social workers to not report an incident of suspected abuse or neglect. Anyone should report a suspected or witnessed abuse to the local police or children's protective services:
State laws vary regarding who is required to report abuse or neglect. If you need assistance or have questions, you can contact ChildHelp National Child Abuse 24-hour hotline at 1-800-422-4453.
